The IBMC course is the only course in Portugal to obtain FELASA accreditation (accreditation number 020/08). This course follows the recommendations of FELASA for laboratory animal science training for scientists (Category C).
The course combines theory (lectures, self-study) with practical exercises and group assignments. Focus is on how to design, plan and carry out experiments to minimize animal harm.
This course will give you the necessary training to obtain a permit to work with animals in most European countries.
Attending this course is a first step to meet the challenge of doing good research with animals in a responsible way. But laboratory animal science is a developing discipline, and what is best practice today may not be so in five years.
